Adenylyl(3'-5')adenosine (ApA) and uridyl(3'-5')uridine (UpU) are hydrolyzed at unprecedentedly large rates by rare earth metal ions at pH 8, 30 degrees C. With 0.01 M Tm(III), the half-lives are 10 min and 51 min, respectively. Potentiality of these ions as catalytic center of artificial ribonuclease is proposed.
